Drunk driver goes wrong way down Sussex road

A driver was so drunk he didn't realise he was driving the wrong way down a busy 'A' road in Sussex.

78 year old Godfrey Maclaughlan was spotted driving on the southbound carriageway of the A24 at Cowfold by members of the public who called the police.

But he was so intoxicated he didn't see the flashing lights of the police car and only stopped when an officer drove up alongside him and shouted at him to pull over.

Derek Johnson has the story.
